Tech Nation is supporting UK companies with their growth into the Japanese Market.
Japan has previously lagged behind in terms of innovation in the digital sector, however this is something that both Japanese and the Japanese government are seeking to address and therefore provide plenty of opportunity for UK tech in this market.
Japanese corporates are increasingly looking to innovate and collaborate with international start-ups and scale ups across a range of technology areas, including artificial intelligence, cyber security, data analytics, 5G and IoT. Applications areas include smart cities and infrastructure, advanced manufacturing and Industry 4.0, mobility, energy and renewables.
The Japanese government has established a dedicated Government Digital Office and a digital strategy aimed at innovation across AI in manufacturing, fintech and cashless payments, self-driving cars, drones, cloud services, digital government services, paperless business administration, and digital health.
